Rebecca Race

Rebecca Howe Race (1808-1895) participated with her husband Whiting in a variety of civic and religious activities. Race was the vice president of a ladies temperance group that included Amelia Bloomer and several other signers of the Declaration of Sentiments. Her convictions about alcohol induced her to leave the Episcopal Church for the more temperance-oriented Presbyterian Church.
